Michael Jackson : Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Farewell Michael Jackson Board

It's been fun.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

I haven't posted here in years but must admit, it's a shame the message boards won't be on IMDB any more. This was the first board I regularly posted on. I had always been a lifelong MJ fan but after he died, I guess I wanted an outlet to talk with other fans and found this one. This board certainly had its ups and downs but for the most part it was fun, you're right. I'll miss the IMDB boards!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Hi, T-D! You were definitely a favorite! The MJ board was rocking back in 2010. About 30-50 regulars posting multiple times every day. Literally hundreds of posts every day. Then there was a huge argument, and it has never recovered. I had great fun!! Best wishes, all!!!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Do you remember what the argument was about? Just the standard "MJ was a pedo!" "No he wasn't!" 7ec stuff?

I wasn't around back then, so I'm curious haha

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Snooze! Good to hear from you, hope all is well with you.

Yep, totally agree, 2009/2010 - This board was great. Were there trolls around? Sure, but the fans definitely outnumbered them.

What was the huge argument?

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Hi, T-D and "Novalich" :)

What I remember is that one poster gave advise to a younger poster which a lot of people regarded as inappropriate, and there was a huge pile-on against the poster who gave the advice. And then others came to her defense, and it was a huge mess. The argument lasted several days, and the board never recovered. Sad. :(

Various people I remember from back in the day:

- circlesquaretriangle
- Amsterdamgirl
- The poster from Scotland

One problem is when people change their screennames.

It would be nice if everyone signed off over the next 2 weeks, for old time's sake.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Hi Snooze: The 2 posters from Scotland that I know of are Jason and Tigereyes. Tiger and I keep in touch.
I remember Amesterdamgirl and circlesquaretriangle as well as pollka, Twilightandshadow.

Too bad the imdb posting boards are coming to an end, several of us from the F&D board signed on to the imdb clone but the trolls have been showing up there. We also have a google group board that is starting up. I'm sure there are a lot of Michael Jackson boards out there. Some posters have gone to IMdb Facebook so there are places out there .


I'm a nasty woman.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Right, Twilightandshadow!

And there was LImom, or something like that.

And a nice man who had a grand-stepdaughter he once wrote about was having issues. And I seem to recall he had serious medical problems, back or something.

And hi, K4K! :)

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

LIMOM quit all the boards completely a few years ago due to a very sad tragedy in her life.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Hi....I remember when you started posting and when you stopped coming by as often. The poster from Scotland is/was TigerEyes and I still have her e-mail. There was someone called Marquis of Queensborough. I remember the guy with the stepdaughter and Polka was super.....she posted some terrific pictures and articles. Somebody posted a link to a naked picture or something and they were kicked off the board but I can't remember who. They came back with a changed name though.
I changed my name for some reason one time and I can't remember the old one.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Hi, K4K, yes, TigerEyes! And Marquis was the other guy I was trying to remember.

That someone who posted a naked pic link may have been me! It wasn't here, though. It was on the Deliverance board. I wasn't kicked off. I had all of my posts deleted. And my quota for posting was bumped up from 30 seconds to 1 hour! It goes down every so often, and now, 6 years later, it's back down to 2 minutes. Just in time for the grand closing of the boards!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

So that was you! You bad boy! I do remember you talking about your posting quota. However, I think that someone else....a female did that too and she changed her name and came back. But I would not swear to it.
Jean-Luc_34 is the one who had the granddaughter who had surgery. He posted on here recently

Jean-Luc_34 said Snoozy"! I hope he's well! Brilliant writer!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Thanks for letting me know. :)

And Bloom6000 your screenname definitely looks familiar to me too.

Oh, yeah, and there was Ronan too...

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Is Ronan not on this board anymore? I feel like he changed his name several times...to avoid detection..

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Just because someone isn't a fan that doesn't make them a troll your narrow minded opinion that only your opinion is right and anyone who disagrees with you is a troll proves you can't debate.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

I've always been very open to anyone having a differing opinion to mine and having a conversation based on said opinions. I couldn't care less if someone dislikes MJ and wants to waste their own time in an attempt to feel important in their otherwise meaningless life by spreading their negative opinion. But if someone is spreading nonsensical hate on a discussion board, spreading racism, bully 5b4 ing posters and generally trying to make others feel like s*** because they're so insecure and need that to make themselves feel good; then sorry bub, but they are trolls. Apologies if you think you fall into that category Ace, judging by your reply to me, it feels like you do.


Think, McFly. Think!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

The only bullying is from fans who call everyone who disagrees with them trolls and it's these self important fans who in the past have ganged up on people like me and others who dare to question their beliefs. The Jackson fandom are the biggest bullies on imdb.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

I've never labelled anyone who disagrees with me a troll. At worst, they might be misinformed but they're entitled to their own opinion, no matter what it is.

If you felt you were being ganged up on; you either continue to put forth your opinion in an intelligent manner or use your Ignore button. It's pretty simple.

Yet, you came at me and claimed my opinion was 'narrow minded' and that apparently I can't debate because I said there were trolls around on this board in 2009/10? Right..ok...

It works both ways.


Think, McFly. Think!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

I agree that not being a fan does not make a person a troll. On the F&D board we had a poster who personally attacked another poster , it went on for over a month and when the poster who was attacked deleted his account, the "troll" proceeded to try to destroy the F&D board , this "troll" kept changing its account name and even admitted on another board that since they destroyed a poster , they were going to destroy the F&D board next. Didn't happen and administration finally stepped in. This behavior went on for over a month. Its this type of poster that has been bringing the IMDb boards down.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

I always thought you were so FUNNY! I was here then but I don't remember the argument you are talking about......what was it.
Of course there has always been bickering on and off....Thank goodness for the ignore button.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

First one I posted on too. I will miss it.

K4K; How's everything with you?

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Just fine. My stepdad was in the hospital and passed away about a year ago but it was not a great shock because he was 88.
I do not post as much as before but it had become a habit to come on here and at least check out some of the new posts.
I go on some of the other boards once in a while but not as much as here.

Maybe enough petitions will go around to chance their stance on this.



Johnny Carson: "It's been so hot lately that Michael Jackson is wearing a seersucker glove."

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Sorry to hear about your stepdad.

Yeah I was similar, I would browse every so often but it felt so quiet here compared to when I first started positing on this board.

It would be nice if the petitions changed the minds of those in charge, but I can't help but feel that they made the announcement and the final date so close together because they didn't want to give people the chance to protest and petition. But who knows...stranger things have happened!

That is good point and you are probably right....but maybe not!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Goodbye everyone. The imdb boards was great fun for me, for so many years. I'm going to miss this place.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

So will I....

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

The Michael Jackson board was great. I have no regrets and am glad I was able to participate and meet so many like minded folks on the web.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Likewise, hope you're well Mijac!

Think, McFly. Think!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Doing fantastic, and glad you were on the MJ board!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

I agree and most of them did not find it necessary to post personal insults. Unfortunately, it is the bad apples who have brought us to this situation.
I signed the petition and hope there will others and it just might help.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Haven't posted here since probably 2011 but the MJ board gave me life long friendships for which i'll always be grateful. It really is a shame that they're ridding the site of all the message boards. Even to this day, though I don't post anymore, I enjoy coming here and reading the threads after watching a movie or tv s 5b4 how.

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

^^^Nice sight to see, OF3!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

So do I. Hate to see it end. 16d0

I'm well, just getting old. Hope you are doing good. There were great times on this board but you know the old saying "all good things must come to an end"

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Aren't we all! I'm well thank you. A bittersweet feeling to see this board again and seeing some lovely familiar faces but knowing that it'll be gone soon. Really think IMDB are making a mistake; I loved browsing the various message boards here, so it is disappointing for sure.

Think, McFly. Think!

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

Yes it has.....

Re: Farewell Michael Jackson Board

I've been coming to this Michael Jackson board since 2007. Fun times all the way. Will really miss these boards.
